I’m looking for a Mac app that will let me create simple “Booklets/Brochures” by which I mean a 4/8/12/etc page document which, when printed in “landscape” mode on US Letter paper (or US Legal, if you want to get fancy), will be able to be folded in half to create a… well… booklet.
I know it’s possible to do this by hand, but it’s tedious because you have to manually pair the pages like 8 and 1, 7 and 2, 6 and 3, 5 and 4 in a particular order.
That’s the part that I want the software to deal with. Ideally, I want to be able to work with the document as “normal” as possible in Pages or MSWord, and then have the software deal with formatting it properly for printing.
I only need to do this a few times a year, so I don’t want or need anything complicated like Adobe InDesign or something like that, but I’m not against paying for an app that will do this. Obviously, a free solution would be welcome, too.
